Ex-guard testifies that he saw Michael Jackson perform sex act on boy
UPI News Service, 04/07/2005
Michael Jackson's California child molestation trial resumed Thursday with a former employee saying he saw the pop star perform a sex act on a boy.
The ex-security guard at Neverland Ranch told Santa Maria jurors he witnessed the inappropriate behavior through a bathroom window in the early 1990s, "Entertainment Tonight" reported.
No charges were ever filed against Jackson in relation to the alleged past offense, but the boy later received settlement money from the singer.
Cross-examination by the defense, however, revealed the former guard had sued Jackson, claiming he was unfairly fired. He was then countersued by Jackson, who claimed the man stole from him during his employment.
Jackson has pleaded not guilty to all of the child molestation charges and remains free on bail.
